Firstly, I love this community and the Ghost platform! So, thank you all.
So, question— I’m considering buying a theme and modifying the Casper theme. I understand about git installing a theme into the them directory.
So, my question, what is the best practice (I’m not a developer. I don’t code, just tweak things) for updating Ghost and themes that have modifications?
Example: I have my own “branch” of Casper running and I have made modifications (eg, the 45 pixel height limit seems silly, IMHO). But, I also want to continue to upgrade the theme as changes and features are added. I also want to have an AMP template and some page-specific hbs files. If I just do a straight upgrade, I’m going to lose all the modifications (is my understanding).
OR, I have a theme that I’ve installed and lightly modified (similar changes as listed above). The theme will update over time to include features and address changes in the Ghost platform. What’s the best way to “update/upgrade” everything without losing everything each time?
I know “git” can be powerful, and I’m willing to learn, but I’m an amateur beyond git cloning.
Thanks in advance!
